Hi All,

I am facing below error message while installing Prosys OPC UA simulation server in my debian box.
I have used this command -> sudo dpkg -i prosys-opc-ua-simulation-server-3.2.0-214.deb

error message:

Based on the internet this could be a bug in xdg-util package (based on discussion at https://github.com/cryptomator/cryptomator/issues/498, it had same error message, apparently Ubuntu would have fixed that, but Debian not). You could try the workaround mentioned there, which is manually creating the missing directory like this:

mkdir /usr/share/desktop-directories/

and after that

apt -f install


Please let us know if this did resolve the problem
